I wish you could have been there when I had the opportunity recently, to tell two Mothers that their adult sons could come to Special Friends Day Camp! You would have seen the longing on their faces turn to joy and the tears in their eyes when they finally realized a dream come true for their adult children!
Saying “YES” to people who are so often told “NO”, is a great privilege of mine and I do wish you could be there when these moments of joy and hope rush in!
Would you and your friends, family or youth group join Warm Beach Camp this summer in the ministry to adults with special needs? For every camper registered, we need one volunteer counselor who becomes a “Buddy” for the week of camp. You’ll never know such joy in service!
I’m inviting you to consider making Special Friends Day Camp your short–term missions experience this summer. The cost is minimal, just $30.00 per week and the opportunity “to experience their world” is right here at home!
The need for volunteers will be great this summer as campers are already registering! Please consider helping Warm Beach Camp by volunteering at one (or all) of our three Special Friends Day Camps: June 29 – July 2, 2010, July 5-8, 2010, and August 23-26, 2010. After you do, you’ll be the ones telling the ministry stories and saying I WISH YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THERE!
For more information on how to register yourself or your group, please email Laurie Fertello at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 425-239-9841.
